Thursday Obsession- Drugstore lipsticks!

I went through a long period of time when lipstick was a bit of an afterthought in my beauty routine. I was just not that interested in it, focusing much more on the eyes. I would throw on an old standby colour or even just a bit of Rosebud Salve (which I still adore) and go. Then I became a mother and I started to feel super frumpy.

Drugstore brands tend to be pretty inexpensive so it is possible to stock up on a bunch for not a lot of $$ and completely renew your look!
